The First Lady of Kindness and Grace

About Lady Louise & Karen Petit

Some of you may wonder who we are.

Here's our story: I am Lady Louise, a rescued Standard Poodle. My Mom Karen found me at Carolina Poodle Rescue in June 2008. My sister, Thelma and I, had a bit of a bump in the road in the early months of our lives, but fortunately both were labeled "rescues." So, my smart sister, now named LuLu, turned this around, and we rescued needy humans!

I discovered that my Mom, Karen Petit, was a writer, and we began going to schools, libraries and other kinds of events to share our love of reading and writing with children, teachers and many other people. Mom Karen is the creator and author of the "Shandon's Ivy League" Mystery Series for young readers; "Together in Heaven" that explains death to small children; and "A Paw on My Heart for adults.

Before I came into her life, Mom Karen was an award-winning newspaper reporter and editor and then had a career in public relations at the University of South Carolina before devoting her life to her passion, which is writing. Her books have been recognized by the Dog Writers Association of America and the Alliance of Purebred Dog Writers, and she has been invited to speak all over the United States.

Now we have a new book, and it's all about me! Click on "The Book" to know more!
